Private Catamaran Charters in Turks and Caicos
One of the best ways to explore the Turks and Caicos islands is on a private catamaran charter. A luxury catamaran offers plenty of deck space, comfortable and chic interiors, and enough power to glide smoothly across the water to hidden bays and untouched islands. This is a great way for couples and families to spend quality time together out on the water and enjoy beach BBQs, sublime sunsets and exhilarating water sports.
What could be more romantic than watching the sunset on the ocean while sipping cool drinks from the deck of a private catamaran? Most sunset catamaran cruises in Turks and Caicos include light bites and drinks so you can sip and snack as you take in the riot of colours that light up the sky as the sun sinks below the horizon. After the sun sets, you might be able to catch the shimmering green lights of the bioluminescent glow worms on the surface of the water.
Private catamaran charters are perfect for families because the boats have plenty of space to spread out on the decks or in the air-conditioned interiors. Kids and adults alike will love snorkelling in the clear waters, beach hopping, and discovering interesting wildlife on pristine islands like lizards, sea turtles and herons. Take the whole family out for a fun-filled day at sea or give them the experience of a lifetime with a multi-day catamaran trip to hidden corners of Turks and Caicos.
A catamaran journey is so much more than just skimming across the water to see interesting sights. Most luxury catamarans offer an array of exciting activities in the water and on land. Whether you want to explore underwater worlds or gather with friends and family over great food and drinks, these catamaran activities will keep you entertained for hours on end.
The waters around the Turks and Caicos islands are home to many dolphins, the most famous of which is Jojo. This unique Atlantic bottlenose dolphin voluntarily interacts with people and he can often be found swimming in the waters off Grace Bay Beach and the eastern cays off Providenciales. You never know when you may come across Jojo or other playful dolphins on a catamaran trip.
Snorkeling is one of the most popular activities on a catamaran journey because the waters around Turks and Caicos are incredibly clear and filled with fascinating marine life. Your guide can take you to amazing reefs where you can see colourful sea fans, turtles, stingrays and fish including vibrant parrot fish and even reef sharks.
A day out on the water wouldn’t be complete without a beach BBQ. Your luxury catamaran crew can arrange a fabulous BBQ feast on a stunning beach with delectable dishes like fresh seafood, grilled veggies and meats and cold drinks like fruit juices and rum punch. Most crews can accommodate special dishes or any dietary requests you might have. Lunchtime BBQs usually take place under the shade of palm trees, while evening BBQs could include a beach bonfire.

Where Can I Dock My Boat in Turks and Caicos?
Turks and Caicos is a boater’s dream due to its crystal clear waters, beautiful beaches and uninhabited cays. Boat owners will also be happy to know that the island of Providenciales has a number of state-of-the-art marinas to dock your boat. Rest assured that you and your vessel are in good hands. Many boat owners opt to dock their vessels and rent a private villa so they can enjoy the best of both worlds—exploring the waters by day and indulging in the utmost luxury and comfort in the evenings.
Marinas in Turks and Caicos
If you’re planning on visiting Turks and Caicos via boat, Providenciales is the best place to dock your vessel because there are multiple marinas around the island. These are the best marinas where you can dock, store and service your boat.
Located on the northeastern side of Providenciales in the Leeward region, Blue Haven Marina is a full-service luxury marina with everything a yacht owner could ask for. The marina has 100 slips with floating docks that can house vessels up to 220 feet and another area with sheltered slips for smaller vessels. Boat owners have access to water and power utilities, a fuel station, customs and immigration services, restaurants, a convenience store and even a concierge who can arrange car rentals to your villa and other destinations around the island.
Turtle Cove Marina is the largest and oldest marina on Providenciales. It is located in a sheltered bay on the north coast of the island and is accessed by an inlet. There are 100 slips here including 65 deep water slips that are available for short and long-term rental. The marina has a wide array of amenities including a fuel station, water and power utilities, bars and restaurants, a medical clinic, a fishing and tackle shop and a car rental service. Another draw is the boat ramp for trailer launching with parking for trailers nearby.
Caicos Marina sits on the southern shore of Providenciales in the Long Bay Beach area just a short drive from Triton Luxury Villa. If your vessel is in need of servicing or repairs, this is the place to go because they have certified technicians who can do hull repair, restorations, painting and more. There is also a shop where you can buy parts and supplies. The marina offers dockage and short-term and long-term storage with an indoor area that can house vessels up to 35 feet.
How Long Does it Take to go from Miami to Turks and Caicos by Boat?
Turks and Caicos is about 550 miles southeast of Miami, so the duration of the boat trip really depends on the type of vessel you are travelling on, the speed you are travelling, and the wind and water conditions.
Triton Villa Is the Ideal Private Holiday Home for Boat Enthusiasts
While some boat owners don’t mind sleeping onboard their vessel while it’s docked in the marina, many more opt to rent a holiday home so they can stretch their legs and enjoy a bit of space and seclusion on land. Triton Luxury Villa is the perfect accommodation for boat owners visiting Turks and Caicos because the villa is just a short drive to some of Providenciales’ best marinas including Caicos Marina, Blue Haven Marina and Turtle Cove Marina. Unlike at a marina, guests of Triton will have direct access to a beautiful beach as well as seven spacious and chic bedrooms, two swimming pools, a hot tub, and an outdoor movie theater with a fire pit.
